Nike Basketball Camp at Jesuit High School

Nike Basketball Camp at Jesuit High School is back for a second exhilarating summer in Sacramento from July 27-31, 2015 for boys and girls. Ideally located just minutes away from the heart of downtown, Jesuit has a long tradition of athletic excellence in the prep ranks, and is the perfect spot to hone your game.

Campers will participate in drills, contests, and scrimmages daily along with strength and conditioning training.

This program is directed by Jesuit Basketball Head Coach, Greg Harcos, and staff including members of the Jesuit HS Basketball Team.

Highlights Include

  • Daily emphasis on fundamental development, team play, and more
  • Low camper to instructor ratio
  • Official Nike Basketball Camp t-shirt
  • Nike Camp workbook and other great prizes

Camp Details

Complete Skills

This program is intended to help players develop athletically. The individual camp is a great opportunity for young basketball players looking to develop and refine their fundamental basketball skills. This program also includes a curriculum for intermediate/advanced players looking to enhance their skill set at the post, wing or guard position. Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, shooting, offensive moves, defense, rebounding, team play, and more.

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability.

Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

Group Discounts

If 10 or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $40 discount. Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application.

Greg Harcos

Greg Harcos directs our basketball instructional program and currently serves as head varsity basketball coach at JHS.  He brings a vast basketball background to camp to help young basketball players improve their game.  

Read Full Bio

His resume includes Varsity Basketball from 2001-present, JV Basketball from 1997-2001, Varsity Assistant from 1996-1997, and Frosh Head Coach from 1995-1996.  Coach Harcos also coached JV Football from 1997-2000 and was a member of the varsity football staff in 2001.  His coaching career started at St. Ignatius Grammar School in 1994-1995.

Greg attended the University of California-Berkeley where he graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree.  He later earned his Masters in Education Degree from Chapman University.

Coach Harcos has led the Marauder basketball program to much success.  Greg posts an overall record of 247 wins to 122 losses.  The team earned Delta River League Championships in 2003, 2006, and 2007.  He also led his program to Sac-Joaquin Section titles in 2006, 2007, 2011, and 2012.  The team finished as section runner-up in 2003, 2011, and 2012.

In 2006, Coach Harcos was honored with the Sacramento Bee Coach of the Year award.  He led the Marauders to national and state rankings.

  • 2010 – # 28 in the State
  • 2011 – # 10 in the State and # 60 Nationally

Greg’s coaching philosophy is that basketball is not only about learning the game but also using the circumstances that parallel the game to teach life lessons and prepare our athletes for what lies ahead.  He strives to develop each individual to the best of his ability in an attempt to maximize his players’ ability.  Understand that skill can only take you so far-thus strength, toughness, hard work, and preparation, should be easily identified in the character of a Jesuit team.
